Psycho Judge Resigns After Viciously Berating Sick Woman Begging for Help Who Died Three Days Later

By Bizpac Review. A Florida circuit court judge’s roughly 30-year-long career deservedly crashed and burned this week after courtroom footage surfaced that shows her mercilessly and unnecessarily berating a disabled defendant. And not just any disabled defendant, but one who died three days later.

Recorded last Sunday, the footage shows former Broward County Circuit Judge Merrillee Ehrlich, a Democrat, spouting an endless stream of bilge at Sandra Faye Twiggs, 59, a wheel-chair-bound woman who suffered from asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Why all the venom? Because Twiggs needed help, according to the Miami Herald, but every time she tried to speak, Ehrlich shut her down.

The paper notes that Twiggs wound up in jail after she got into a domestic dispute with her daughter. During her incarceration, Twiggs reportedly had difficulty obtaining her medications.

When she tried to inform Ehrlich of this problem during her court appearance, the judge snapped at her, saying, “Ma’am, I am not here to talk to you about your breathing treatments!” (Read more from “Psycho Judge Resigns After Viciously Berating Sick Woman Begging for Help Who Died Three Days Later” HERE)

Watch This Judge Brutally Berate a Woman in a Wheelchair. The Woman Died. The Judge Has Quit.

By The Miami Herald. A Broward County circuit judge delivered a blistering, arm-waving, face-palming, tongue-lashing to a frail, out-of-breath woman — pushed into court in a wheelchair — who was facing misdemeanor charges following a family feud.

Three days later, the defendant died.

Judge Merrillee Ehrlich has resigned, although it is unclear when that resignation was provided and when it becomes effective . . .

“It is not appropriate for anyone to endure that kind of treatment,” said Finkelstein’s chief assistant, Gordon Weekes. “All that was required was a bit of patience, and a bit of respect to allow this lady to speak, to gather herself and to breathe.” . . .

Twiggs suffered from asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, also called COPD. She ended up under arrest after squabbling with her 19-year-old daughter. (Read more from “Watch This Judge Brutally Berate a Woman in a Wheelchair. The Woman Died. The Judge Has Quit.” HERE)

James Woods’ Body Slam to ‘Honey Bunny’ Hillary Has the Internet Cheering … and a Little Scared

Woods seized on a book from New York Times political reporter Amy Chozick on Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential aspirations to blow the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee out of the water as convincingly as President Donald Trump did on the night of the election.

Clinton was quoted in the new book, “Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling,” lamenting election night that “they were never going to let me be president.” . . .

“Your corruption was not a flesh wound, but a systemic rot of your entire being. YOU were never going to let you be president, because you are a greedy, lying grifter. You weren’t born a Clinton, but you took to being one like a duck to swamp water,” Woods tweeted, linking to a Fox News article on the book.

Woods’ tweet proved to be excellent fodder for all the “deplorables” who see Hillary as little more than evil reincarnated.

Starbucks’ Horrible Treatment of Manager in Philly Could Make Her a Multi-Millionaire When She’s Done

With Starbucks in such a rush to appease the racial grievance crowd, the company essentially threw a manager trying to enforce what she understood to be standard policy under the bus . . .

In statements issued and tweeted, Starbucks was clear that the manager’s decision to tell two black non-paying customers to make a purchase or leave — no one would have batted an eye had the men been white — was racially motivated.

Gregg Re, an attorney who writes for The Daily Caller, said in an op-ed run Saturday, “DEFAMATION: The Starbucks Manager Accused Of Racism Is Probably About To Be A MILLIONAIRE,” that “a reasonable person would conclude that Starbucks is calling Hylton, at best, an unwitting racist.”

“Starbucks and its CEO Kevin Johnson have gone out of their way to imply that the female manager, identified in media reports as Holly Hylton, was acting on subconscious racial motivations when she told the loitering customers to either buy a beverage or get out of her store,” Re wrote.

Pointing to the defamation laws in Pennsylvania, where the incident took place, Re noted that the burden is on the plaintiff to show that the statement made about the defendant, was false, and caused damages.

WATCH: Fresno State Professor Praises Plane Hijackers, Calls for Acts of Terrorism

By The Daily Wire. A newly uncovered video featuring Fresno State professor Randa Jarrar shows the far-left professor praising plane hijackers and calling for acts of domestic terrorism against specific individuals . . .

Jarrar, who is currently under investigation by the university for recent tweets attacking the Bush family after the passing of Barbara Bush, is also seen in the video promoting “resistance fighters” who hijacked planes in the 1960s and ’70s.

“I don’t give a f—. I’m buying guns. I’m an American. I’m buying guns,” Jarrar said. “The other side is, like, doing some stupid s—. I’m gonna do some stupid s—. I’m tired of, like, being the bigger person — literally am usually — but, like, I’m also just tired of the left being, like, f—ing stupid and being like, ‘No we have to like be gentle’ … no, don’t be f—— gentle.'”

Later in the clip, Jarrar calls for attacks against someone named Spencer, asking why “Spencer’s house is still standing.” (Read more from “WATCH: Fresno State Professor Praises Plane Hijackers, Calls for Acts of Terrorism” HERE)

‘Your Kids Masturbate’ and Other Provocative Lines from Fresno State Professor’s Talks

By The Fresno Bee. A video circulated by people identifying with the alt-right presents a compilation of often obscenity-laced moments from Fresno State professor Randa Jarrar’s interviews and speeches.

The university is investigating the conduct of Jarrar, an award-winning author, who posted to Twitter that Barbara Bush was an “amazing racist” hours after the former first lady’s death was announced Tuesday. On Friday, university officials including president Joseph Castro, received a link to the compilation video, sent via the email address Altrightnews. The video was posted to YouTube on Wednesday by a new user named Vigilant Goose.

In one clip featured in the video, Jarrar is discussing Fresno’s agriculture industry and says “a lot of the farmers now are Trump supporters and just f—ing stupid.” In another, she says she can’t stand “the white, hetero patriarchy.” . . .

Jarrar’s comments in the videos are sometimes received with laughter or applause, but in other instances — like during a speech at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis — people walk out in protest, something Jarrar seems used to . . .

“Sorry, guys,” she says. “Your kids masturbate.” (Read more from “‘Your Kids Masturbate’ and Other Provocative Lines from Fresno State Professor’s Talks” HERE)

WATCH: Students Condemn Trump’s Decision to Send Troops to the Border… Before Finding out Their ‘Favorite’ President Did the Same Thing

By The Daily Wire. On Saturday, Campus Reform uploaded a video in which Media Director Cabot Phillips speaks with students at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

When Phillips asks the students their opinion on Trump sending troops to the southern border of the United States, their reaction is exactly what one would expect.

“I feel like it’s not justified … it is like a totally uncalled for act of power,” one student said. Another student said she thinks the move “puts a bad light on America.” . . .

Then Phillips flipped the script: “Did you know that President Obama did the exact same thing when he was president?” he asked.

The student who called Trump’s actions an “uncalled for act of power” simply replied, “Like…” followed by a lengthy pause. He eventually finished his thought, saying, “I don’t know anything about that, personally. So, the difference is definitely with publicity and like, false information.” (Read more from “WATCH: Students Condemn Trump’s Decision to Send Troops to the Border… Before Finding out Their ‘Favorite’ President Did the Same Thing” HERE)

Gov. Brown Says He’s ‘Close to an Agreement’ with Trump Administration on California National Guard Deployment

By Capital Public Radio. Gov. Jerry Brown says he is “close to an agreement” with the Trump administration on deploying California’s National Guard to the Mexico border, but tweets from President Donald Trump seem to indicate otherwise.

On Wednesday morning, Trump tweeted that “Jerry Brown is trying to back out of the National Guard at the Border” and that “the people of the state are not happy.”

The Governor’s Office, meanwhile, has maintained that nothing has changed since California submitted a proposed agreement to the administration last week. (Read more from “Gov. Brown Says He’s ‘Close to an Agreement’ with Trump Administration on California National Guard Deployment” HERE)

Russian Lawyer Asks Mueller an Important Question

By AP. A Russian lawyer who discussed sanctions with Donald Trump Jr. in New York during his father’s 2016 campaign for the U.S. presidency said Sunday that special counsel Robert Mueller has not contacted her yet.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Natalia Veselnitskaya also detailed her recent meeting in Berlin with investigators from the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee. Like Mueller, the committee is investigating allegations of Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.

Veselnitskaya met in June 2016 with then-candidate Donald Trump’s son, his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort, his campaign chairman at the time, Paul Manafort, after Trump Jr. was told the Russian lawyer had potentially incriminating information about Hillary Clinton.

Can Mueller Be More Honest Than His Colleagues?

By The Hill. I think it’s entirely possible — likely, in fact — that Robert Mueller is an honest broker and performing his job as special counsel without fear or favor. That he will investigate until he reaches the end of the logical trail and present his legitimate findings accordingly, recommending prosecution of those who may have violated our nation’s laws and betrayed our trust.

But considering the information that’s become available in the past year, we would be remiss if we didn’t at least consider other possible scenarios. Here’s one of them, posited amidst the context of news that has come to light. It has to do with a special counsel probe with the appearance of several important conflicts of interest.

There are many excellent agents within our intelligence agencies who deserve great credit and respect. But we also know that some bad actors within those agencies have a daunting record of problems that include lying about evidence; conducting politically-motivated acts; botched terrorism investigations; improper surveillance of private citizens, members of Congress and journalists; providing incorrect information to Congress; and illegally withholding evidence.

When top FBI officials spoke privately of needing an “insurance policy” in case Trump were elected, what if they felt this “policy” were necessary not just because they hated Trump, or because they believed Trump was illegally conspiring with Russia? What if they feared what a Trump administration might uncover within the intelligence agencies … and what the administration might do to take steps to reform them? Go up against the intelligence agencies, and as top Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) warned, “They have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”

Mueller isn’t exactly an unconflicted player in this scenario. He was FBI director from 2001-2013 when many alleged abuses occurred and — theoretically — would have a vested interest in protecting his former colleagues and his own legacy by preventing a Trump administration from poking around into alleged intelligence agency misdeeds.

IRS Pushed to Bill Churches $1 Billion

A demand from atheists that the IRS bill churches and other religious organizations a total of some $1 billion would violate freedom of worship and destroy many congregations, a new court brief contends.

In a case now at the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, churches are seeking to overturn a stunning district court decision by Judge Barbara Crabb . . .

It provides that a housing allowance is not considered taxable income when the house is for the convenience of the employer. While pastors do benefit, the tax deduction also is available for workers who live overseas, employees of educational institutes, any member or former member of the uniformed services, government workers living overseas, any American citizen living abroad and others.

Crabb’s verdict in the case brought against Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and others by the Freedom From Religion Foundation found that while the exemption is valid for secular employees, it should not be available for Christian pastors, setting up a discriminatory standard for the benefit . . .

A brief in the case filed by the Becket Fund on behalf of Chris Butler, a pastor from the South Side of Chicago, contends ending the housing allowance “would discriminate against religious groups by treating them worse than many other secular employees who receive similar tax treatment.” (Read more from “IRS Pushed to Bill Churches $1 Billion” HERE)

Texas Sixth-Grader Killed Crossing Highway After Leaving School During Walkout

By Dallas News. A Texas sixth-grader who left his middle school campus during national student walkouts Friday was hit by a car and killed when he attempted to walk across a highway, officials said.

The 11-year-old boy, identified in a hospital news release as Jonathan Benko, was hit at 10:27 a.m. by a pickup traveling north on Loop 375 in El Paso, the El Paso Times reported. He died later at a hospital.

Students nationwide walked out of classes Friday on the 19th anniversary of the mass shooting at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999, to protest gun violence.

The boy was struck while leaving Parkland Middle School in El Paso during the walkout, but he was not participating in it, Ysleta Independent School District Superintendent Xavier De La Torre said at a news conference.

He left in a group of students as part of a “separate, isolated event,” the Times reported. Students walked to the middle school’s football field to gather for the walkout, but a small group hopped over a wall and left campus, according to the students’ accounts to the Times. No other students were hurt, officials said. (Read more from “Texas Sixth-Grader Killed Crossing Highway After Leaving School During Walkout” HERE)

Twitter Blocks Pro-Life Activist with down Syndrome

Twitter reportedly blocked a British pro-life activist with Down Syndrome for more than 24 hours after she posted pro-life pictures.

Charlotte “Charlie” Fien rebuked the social media giant with a trenchantly worded tweet once her account was restored Tuesday. Her previous tweet was dated Sunday . . .

LifeSiteNews contacted Twitter to ask why Fien’s account had been blocked, but did not hear back by deadline . . .

The pro-life advocate gained international renown after she received a standing ovation from United Nations delegates in Geneva in March.

Fien gave a passionate plea asking the international body to defend people with Down Syndrome from eugenic abortion.

Warning: State About to Ban Bible Sales

By WND. Liberty Counsel, which defends religious and civil rights, Friday warned that the state of California effectively is about to ban the sale of Bibles.

A bill in the legislature, approved 50-18 in an Assembly vote this week, would forbid counselors from telling a gender-confused male client that he is actually a man. . .

The bill declares “advertising, offering to engage in, or engaging in sexual orientation change efforts with an individual” is fraudulent business practice.

“If approved, victims of sexual abuse can no longer get counseling if they develop (as often happens) unwanted urges to engage in same-sex behavior or become gender confused,” Liberty Counsel said.

“This bill would also make it unlawful for any person to sell books, including the Bible, counseling services, or anything else that directs people to trust in Jesus Christ to help them overcome unwanted same-sex attraction or gender confusion.” (Read more from “Warning: State About to Ban Bible Sales” HERE)

China Banning Online Bible Sales ‘Absurd’

By The Baptist Press. China is purportedly the largest publisher of Bibles in the world, but the communist nation has now apparently blocked online Bible purchases for its residents.
Beginning last week, searches for Bibles at leading online retailers in China came up empty, according to reports from The New York Times and CNN.

The reports indicate certain Bible studies or illustrated storybooks were available through searches. Two merchants told CNN the Bible could be purchased through private messages, but public listings were now “impossible.”

China has historically restricted in-person Bible sales to state-sponsored channels and government-run churches, but online sales presented a loophole of sorts for Christians within the growing underground church movement.

That loophole has now apparently been closed as part of increased religious freedom restrictions — particularly against Christians. (Read more from “China Banning Online Bible Sales ‘Absurd'” HERE)
